. High quality clothing. The Bahamian version of Hawaiian shirts. Batik, called Androsia. The signature clothing of the Bahamas. Most locals have at least one. Soft and nice fabric. Patterns are nice. Grabbed some shirts and napkins

I enjoyed seeing the timeless process used to make this lovely fabric. My husband enjoyed the visits which is surprising-he is so not a shopper. The only gifts I purchased were from here and were well received!
